WILTSHIRE Creative and Folio Theatre have joined forces to bring three short films to audiences.

The co-production of World Wide Wiltshire is made up of three short films harnessing the creative power of the region to showcase the finest work inspired by the county.

The films contain performances from David Ellington, Pippa Haywood and former Wiltshire Creative Further Education student and Stage 65 youth theatre member Iona Johnson.

Without Knowing Mr Walkley is by Edith Oliver. It is an extract from Edith Oliver’s autobiographical novel of the same title. Edith was born in Wiltshire and lived in the county for her whole life. In 1916, she helped form the Women’s Land Army in Wiltshire, for which she was rewarded in 1920 with an MBE.

Pippa Haywood (Bodyguard, Prisoners Wives, Scott & Bailey, Green Wing) performs the role of Edith.

Home by Hannah Treadaway is an extract from Hannah Treadaway’s Come To Where I’m From piece, commissioned and first produced by Paines Plough and Wiltshire Creative.
